The Film Director's Process

Dates: February 18 – 22, 2024
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. (Qatar/AST)


Every film director has a unique vision on how to turn their scripts into a visual story. In this short program taught by Northwestern alumni, students will learn how to develop a distinct directorial style, in which they explore artistic choices motivated by story, and learn the technical aspect of breaking down a narrative. Students will learn how to turn short-film scripts into creative project books in which directorial style, script breakdown, logline, synopsis, crew, cast, and mood boards are created.
